2009 Top Five - Blog Posts
Onwards and upwards with my 2009 Top Fives. This time my five favourite Blog Posts of 2009:1. Sad - January 2nd
A year is a long time in football. "Friends of mine who support other teams now give me an apologetic look. It disgusts me that it has got to this."
)2. 21 days in jail or $210. How'd you plead? - May 27th
My court appearance for speeding. "Another chap, dressed in motor oil and sweat told the Judge that he was unable to accept the 5 demerit points as he never had a driving licence."
)3. Little Charlton are back - August 7th
On the eve of a new season. "At least it is in the backwater of the lower English divisions where Charlton have come full circle from the day's when I used to go with my Dad with a wollen scarf tied around my wrist eagerly anticipating every game win, lose or draw."
)4. Injection - October 22nd
Trying to move the pregnancy thing along. "Today at the hospital a nurse recommended a medicinal injection to encourage labour, I have no idea what she meant but I am personally recommending a stinking hot chicken madras tonight for tea."
)5. CAFC Team of the Decade series - through December
My favourite Charlton team of the noughties. "Richard read the game brilliantly, his tackling was almost flawless, he had the pace of a cheetah and when he scored that goal at Wembley my life could have stopped right then because whatever was to happen next would never have been so beautiful."
